Library construction manager chosen

March 27, 2012


Commissioners unanimously agreed to hire Lawrence-based B.A. Green Construction to serve as the construction manager for the $19 million expansion of the Lawrence Public Library.

The company will serve much like a general contractor for the project, but instead of having complete leeway to hire all subcontractors for the job, the city will use a competitive bidding process to hire subcontractors for the project.

B.A. Green also will advise the city on whether it would be advantageous for the city to move the library to a temporary location while construction is under way on the expansion at Seventh and Vermont streets.

Construction on the project is expected to begin this fall.

It's "people" like 0day that make anonymity on the internet such a hateful thing. Same with lunacyprojector. There was a vote. The library is to expand. Deal with it.

i would love to see all the library employees who basically sit on their butt all day surfing the net move all those books to the new location. but i am sure that the library will hire movers. what a joke.

Either that, or it's completely malfunctioning.
